Now this news is really very disappointing. I was planning to lay my hands on one of these. To me, it should be comparable to a Pajero. With def locks. That to on the lower side of 10 lacs. Don't you agree guys.

Now what do i buy?

YES I would love to have a 4x4 Bolero VLX with a IFS and would advice Mahindra to re think the pricing of the bolero in context to the XYLO. The present VLX is far too costly and the 4x4 must cost as much as the present two wheel drive bolero.

Hi, Any updates on 4WD Bolero Storm??
It will be my dream vehicle. Would like ABS with 2.5L engine, 100+ BHP with loads of torque.
Any idea when my dream would come true???

scorpio or bolero 4wd with abs and airbags and other safety features and some comfort features would indeed be lovely. also if the consumer can be offered the colour of choice it would be superb.
but apparently there are "constraints" at M&M - going by my conversation with them last week. however, I understand that this feedback is "under evaluation".
I guess guys like us will need to wait some more!

We would all want that but going my sound bites coming out of M&M indicates that this is not happening any time or not at all!

Shankar and Ani: Spikey Sir is laughing at your -ve comments. Does that mean there could be something positive ?

Spikey Sir: Way to go Bring it on with IFS. Shorten the engine compartment, increase the interior space and seee it selling like ice creams in the hot desert.

@2500cc, spike and ani

what to do?
us consumers have no other option but to wait for suitable vehicles to be available in the marketplace!
till then I for one plan to hold my patience and continue with my existing Scorpio.

cheers

Spikey's smile is for us as Customer's knowing M&M so well . -ve or +ve, they are definitely true comments. After all M&M doesn't want to create customer ire by proving them wrong

Hey Spike,
Thar's mechanicals (that is 4X4 drive train as in Thar, engine, GB & TC) on a Bolero VLX Storm is my dream.
Trust me on this, if you do it, you will be known as Mr. Mahindra
My needs are very simple - Highways, bad roads, trials (for photography),. for which Thar with AC & HT is my second best option
By the way, impressed you remembered my name

There are a lot of people here who will buy it. It will be the panacea for all ills (mostly). But will M&M listen? I don't think so!
